    June 4, 2016 - Fairly chunky red, somewhat closed and needing more time in the cellar.

    March 20, 2016 - Popped and poured this bottle. Nice complexity and layers. We enjoyed this wine as it had notes of Bing cherries, herbs, mint and coffee.

    March 11, 2016 - 2 hours in the decanter. Solid nose, raspberry, cranberry, chocolate, leather, paper, white pepper. The mouth feel is silky and lingers. Unfortunately the fruit has faded. The flavour is rasberry, pepper and the tanins linger, just long enough to let you know what could have been with greater fruits. If there was a touch more fruit lingering, this would be good for a few more years and could have been truly great, as it is I agree with all the other commenters, drink now. A very pleasant drop with the right red meats, worth the time and space to cellar.

    March 7, 2016 - NobleRottersSydney - Penfolds Bin 389 1998-07 (360 Bar & Dining, Sydney): {cork, 14.5%} (Stephen) Langhorne Creek, Bordertown, Padthaway. Deep garnet/ruby colour. This seems more cabernet-driven than the immediately preceding vintages; perhaps the effect of so much Langhorne fruit? At any rate, there are lots of currant-derived flavours here, and the wine seems better for it. Medium powdery tannins, medium acid, balanced oak (not too overt or vanilla-laden). It’s medium/full-bodied, and picks up some tar and tobacco flavours on the medium/long finish. No sign of heat either. Table opinion seemed split between this and the 2002 for wine-of-the-night; I thought this the better wine. Has another decade left easy. Excellent.
